Raheem Sterling continued his incredible start to the 2019/20 campaign with a fine performance in England’s 5-3 win over Kosovo on Tuesday night.
The 24-year-old arrived on England duty having scored six times in five appearances for Manchester City at the start of the new season.
Sterling scored once and provided another as Gareth Southgate’s side recorded a 4-0 win over Bulgaria on Saturday night.
The attacker then scored once and registered two assists in the 5-3 win over Kosovo.
According to WhoScored, Sterling completed nine successful dribbles whilst he also managed five shots during a fine performance at Southampton’s home ground.

And despite the fact that he turns out for their rivals, a number of Manchester United fans were keen to pay tribute to the former Liverpool forward on Tuesday night.
Indeed, a whole host of United supporters hailed Sterling’s latest performance, and a selection of their Twitter reaction can be seen below:
Sterling has become an absolute joke. Genuinely think he’s criminally underrated now. World class and one of the best in the Premier League without doubt. 1 goal and 3 assists in 45 minutes of play ??

Imagine there’s some people who don’t think Sterling is world class at this current moment! Don’t care who you support, on current form he’s world class! Simple facts of football lol. This is not a purple patch, he’s been consistently good for 2 solid years and carrying on now ??♂️

Agree. He’s 100% world class. It’s not debatable

He’s outstanding, there’s no doubt about it. World class? I still don’t think finishing/ final ball is the most natural thing in the world to him. His movement though, approach play, fitness, attitude, are all outstanding. Just short of truly elite world class for me though.
